The only difficulty with creating "classes" of logos in this way is
that there seem to be some users who prefer only a specific member of
a class, and who do not like other members of the same class.

For example, there seem to be some users who like the second logo in
group 61, but who would prefer something else to the most of the other
logos in that group, so they would want to minimize the possibility of
anything but the second logo from being chosen within that group.

Perhaps classes should be created for viewing, but not for voting for,
the logos, so that at the election, each variant can be uniquely
